The School of Engineering and Applied Science announced late last month that a mechanical and aerospace engineering professor received $300,000 from the American Heart Association to develop a device that can print tissue used for repairing heart damage.

The AHA – a nonprofit organization that funds cardiovascular research – granted a three-year award to Lijie Grace Zhang to develop 4D technology that can print tissue used to repair parts of the heart damaged by disease and heart attacks. Cardiology experts said the 4D technology could eventually allow researchers to print entire hearts that could be used as a more viable option for heart transplants […]
